Flaming Heart Profile

Blended Malt Scotch Whisky

Blended malt whisky Flaming Heart takes its name from a quote by 19th-century American poet and philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson: ‘Every great achievement is the victory of a flaming heart.’

The limited edition expression – of which there have been several renditions – combines Highland malt whisky matured in new French oak ‘hybrid’ casks with smoky Caol Ila single malt.
